The Dragonfly Whisperer talks at the Northwest Stream Center

Interested in learning about some of Mother Nature’s best flyers?  Join Jim Walker, author of Common Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Pacific Coast, at the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s Mc Collum Park (600 –128th Street SE, Everett WA 98208) Thursday September 27 at 7pm.  Reservations are required by calling 425-316-8592; $5 Adopt A Stream Foundation Members, $7 non-members.

Dragonflies are fascinating creatures with a rich heritage of folklore and fables that vary greatly from culture to culture. European cultures tend to see them as dangerous – and even deadly. Asian and Native American cultures see them as signs of good luck, longevity and prosperity.

Scientist-author Jim Walker gives a very lively presentation exploring the world of dragonflies. Known to his friends as “the Dragonfly Whisperer,” Jim will be showing amazing images of this striking underwater and aerial predator. He will also share tips on how to coax a dragonfly to perch on your finger, and how to see the delightful Happy-face dragonfly! Jim will hang around after the show for a book signing.
